On March 30-31, 2015 the William & Mary Law Library will host a conference that looks beyond the basics of managing law repositories, including topics such as:
- The changing purpose of the repository as it moves from research-based collections to a wider spectrum that includes a school’s history, archives, special collections, and intellectual output.
- How institutional policies and practices effect established repositories: what new materials to collect, the decision-making process, working with law school contacts, and the impact on library policies and personnel.
- The challenges of collecting and converting non-standard digital materials such as multimedia, blogs and html-based publications.
- Gathering and using statistics.
Check back from program information in December.
This conference is made possible by a grant from the AALL/Bloomberg Continuing Education Grants Program and by the sponsorship of bepress and LIPA.
